    Honey, let's do it in front of Microsoft.

    (I'm also interested in how the skeletal tracking worked. This probably wasn't one of the official test scenarios.)

      There's no skeleton tracking there. Its just a point cloud that's been triangulated and texturemapped.

      Making a skeleton tracker work for two people, uh, interacting would be Quite Difficult, but you coudl drop them a line and vounteer your services for a few million frames of training data?

        I thought it was captured on a Kinect, which does skeleton tracking on its IR dataset and which I assumed failed in hilarious ways, ways in which I am at least as interested in seeing as the actual video. I was assuming that it was a Kinect since our host is known to walk circles around Microsoft for personal reasons and if he mentions a Microsoft product then it's probably on topic.

          Also I can click links and read.

          The Kinect is just a depth camera... it returns a point cloud which connected hardware can do stuff with. Skeleton tracking is a separate process which is done on the host PC/console, and wasn't used here at all.

    Somewhat upset to discover that the everything2 article on 'synthetic hyperpornography' seems to have disappeared some time over the last ten years.
